Arena 80 give charity donation to GROW

Each year Arena 80 ac give a donation to a local charity as nominated and chosen by the members of the club. This year we had five very worthy charities to choose from and with 52 votes cast there was a clear winner which received 21 of the votes.
The winner was a charity called GROW;
GROW are a local charity that provide support to people with mental health issues – they primarily do this through encouraging people to connect to nature with free sessions run in the South Downs and at Saddlescombe Farm.
They are very small charity and will really feel the benefit of our clubs donation.
Many thanks to all those that voted this year and it was very good to see a wide selection of options that members voted on.
GROW was nominated by Jessica Coleman who attended the handing over of the cheque of £700 along with our treasurer Graham Shorter and Caroline Wood.
